Unwind [With Earbuds] (Playaway Children) (Pre-Recorded Audio Player)
In a society where unwanted teens are salvaged for their body parts, three runaways fight the system that would unwind them. Conners parents want to be rid of him because hes a troublemaker. Risa has no parents and is being unwound to cut orphanage costs. Levs unwinding has been planned since his birth, as part of his familys strict religion. Brought together by chance, and kept together by desperation, these three unlikely companions make a harrowing cross-country journey, knowing their lives hang in the balance. If they can survive until their eighteenth birthday, they cant be harmed but when every piece of them, from their hands to their hearts, are wanted by a world gone mad, eighteen seems far, far away. In Unwind, Boston Globe/Horn Book Award winner Neal Shusterman challenges listeners ideas about life not just where life begins, and where it ends, but what it truly means to be alive.
